Joplin man faces burglary charge after incident

A 31-year-old man is facing a burglary charge following an incident Wednesday afternoon at a business near downtown Joplin.

Lt. Matt Stewart of the Joplin Police Department said Rosario J.V. Caruso was arrested at Williams Event Co., 106 S. Joplin Ave.

Stewart said Caruso allegedly entered the business where he formerly worked for a single day and took two nail guns. Two employees witnessed the theft and chased him until he dropped the nail guns. The employees later spotted him at the Joplin Public Library, informed police and had him arrested.

The Jasper County prosecutor’s office filed a charge of first-degree burglary against Caruso.
